Solution

Radius of semicircle PSR = 1/2×10 cm= 5 cm
Radius of semicircle RTQ = 1/2×3 cm = 1.5 cm
Radius of semicircle PAQ = 1/2×7 cm = 3.5 cm

Perimeter of the shaded region = Circumference of semicircle PSR + Circumference of semicircle RTQ + Circumference of semicircle PAQ 

`= [1/2xx 2π(5) + 1/2xx 2π(1.5) + 1/2xx 2π(3.5)] cm`

`= π (5 + 1.5 + 3.5) cm`

`= 3.14 xx 10 cm`

`= 31.4 cm`

Concept: Circumference of a Circle
